Retail services and expertise

Planning & Programming

As a starting point, we examine the competitive landscape and customer profiles so we can identify who we need to respond to in a given marketplace. We embark upon programming studies to assess the property’s opportunities, determine the optimal retail mix and explore merchandising configurations.

Brand Graphics

As a value-added service to the environmental design of a project, new branding and graphics inject freshness and retail energy to a property’s identity. GH+A’s dedicated in-house team develops the brand visual language that tells a compelling story with a distinctive signature.

Tenant Design Criteria

The Tenant Design Criteria Manual is a crucial tool to guide the tenant’s designer on the property’s design criteria and inspire them to create unique, elevated designs for their storefronts and control zones.

Tenant Design Review

In working collaboratively with the tenant’s designer to raise the bar of their design submissions, we issue a report with design recommendations to the landlord and designer regarding each tenant submission.
